41. so well stated, Deb.
I concur with all you said. You captured my experience as well, through 12 yrs of Catholic school taught by Notre Dame and then Holy Cross nuns. Yes, there were a few that were difficult, but most were caring and wonderfully dedicated teachers-- and the skills and values they fostered have served me very well throughout my life.
